Archery and tinkering seem to go hand-in-hand. As soon as an archer gets their bow shooting perfect they decide to tear it apart or test a new piece of equipment to see if it makes an improvement. That makes buying a new gift easy, because—regardless of what you pick—they will want and use it.
I was at the range the other day and overheard an interesting conversation about whether or not you needed to purchase a special choke for turkey hunting. It piqued my interest, so I edged a little closer.
Duct tape and super glue are two products that no household or bug-out kit should be without. Its cheap and each one has more uses than we could ever hope to mention or plan its use. However, there is a third product that is lightweight, cheap and every bit as indispensable—paracord.
I was serving in the Persian Gulf during the L.A. Riots in the early ‘90s. I called home on a MARS station (Military Auxiliary Radio System) to see if everyone was safe and out of danger. My mother answered the phone and said she could see fires burning from three different directions. From 8,000 miles away, I instructed her to get a pump shotgun from the spare room and made sure she knew how to load it.
Long gone are the days of waking up Christmas morning and finding a Daisy Red Ryder under the tree. Oh, it is not a political correctness thing or a problem with Daisy, I just like to find bigger “BB” guns under the tree these days. This year, I am hoping Santa throws a Windham Weaponry AR-15 into his bag.
I don’t mind finding coal in my stocking—well coal black actually although flat dark earth magazines are not bad either. Of course finding AR mags in your stocking is like finding batteries. I wonder what the long, narrow box marked “Adult Signature Required” could be for the fourth day of Christmas?
Knight & Hale has redesigned its Cottontail Rabbit Distress Call making it the perfect choice for use anywhere in the country to seduce coyote, bobcat, fox and other predators.
Whether or not you could be considered an AR aficionado, Windham Weaponry would not likely be the first manufacturer that comes to mind. In fact, I would suspect most are searching their memory banks trying to recall if they have ever even heard of Windham Weaponry. Rest at ease, the name is not as important as who is behind it and the quality of workers building the guns.
Last week I wrote about my disappointment with the stance the Wounded Warrior Project has taken against guns and knives. Hollow speak about quietly supporting the Second Amendment while openly shunning any association with the firearm and knife industries.
No matter where you fall in the spectrum of bomb-defusing baddies to Tim “the Toolman” Taylor, the Leatherman MUT is the multi-tool that will suit all of your needs. This handy tool is the ultimate stocking stuffer—if you can wait that long.

A coworker once described me as so patriotic that all I lacked was a trail of fireworks shooting out of my bum. I served six years on active duty, three tours during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. I can give a firsthand account of the sight and smells during the aftermath of the Turkey Shoot or the feeling of being on the first ship to enter the Gulf after Saddam invaded Kuwait. Today, I am a bit longer in the tooth, but no less patriotic.
“You’re better off with one good knife than 25 bad ones.” Truer words may never have been spoken. But for years, my problem wasn’t whether or not I owned a good knife, but rather my inability to resharpen my knife. I could take a blade so sharp it would cut your eyeball just looking at it and turn it in to a butter knife when I tried to resharpen it.
Although the Senate was expected to vote on the Sportsmen’s Act on Monday it was unable to agree to waive certain procedural rules to allow a vote on the widely supported, bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2012 (S.3525).
The AR or Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) has become the most modular multipurpose shooting platform in history. Whether you prefer
As the suburbs continue to encroach on deer habitat, game departments have become more restrictive about which bang sticks hunters may use when hunting in the deer woods. Whether you are looking to extend your season beyond archery and muzzleloader, or if sticks and strings and front stuffers are simply not what you are looking for, buying a slug gun does not have to break the bank.

Unfortunately, most of the ammunition for the plant is also stored in the basement. An employee was first to discover the fire, which was apparently caused by a faulty electrical system, but is under investigation.
